Rent it Right consultation

The Council is consulting on a proposal to introduce a property licensing scheme called ‘Rent it Right’.

This scheme would introduce:
  • a borough-wide Additional Licensing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
  • Selective Licensing Schemes applying to all private rented properties in four defined areas: Thamesmead North, Abbey Wood, Lower Belvedere and parts of Erith
  • The schemes have been designed to help reduce the levels of anti-social behaviour within those four areas and from HMOs across the Borough, as well as providing support for local tenants and landlords.

Find out more about the four areas and the proposed Rent it Right Scheme

The consultation runs from the 20 November 2017 until 31 January 2018 and can be accessed on the Rent it Right survey.
